Congratulations and well done to our Business Development Manager, Dawn Kane, who on Sunday 29th August 2021, along with some family and friends, successfully climbed Ben Nevis by the Càrn Mòr Dearg Arête route, incorporating two Munros, one of which is the ninth highest mountain in Scotland!

Speaking of her experience Dawn said “It was an experience none of us quite expected but one we will never forget, it was fun, scary, potentially dangerous but exhilarating all in one! The weather was definitely on our side, and we experienced some spectacular views. A truly amazing experience!”

Dawn took on this challenge to help Balloan Athletic Football team with their fund raising to buy a de-fib for the club and community in general.

Balloan FC, coached by one of Bancon Construction’s sub-contractors, is a club dedicated to consistently improving and challenging themselves to play at the highest level to produce more talented players in the Highlands and the only youth team at this level who give young players the opportunity to travel and play in a tournament in Portugal every summer.

Fundraising is done completely by the players and coaches who give up much of their own time at weekends throughout the year.

We wish Dawn all the best in reaching her fundraising target. If you would like to donate please visit the fundraising page:
